Are you a local film maker or part of a group that makes short films in and around Weston-super-Mare? Making a film as a part of a project or a school film club?

We would like to give you the opportunity to show your film at our first local film festival in our Studio Theatre at the Blakehay Theatre on Friday 06th September 2019.

The festival will run during the afternoon and/or evening of the day (dependant on the number of entries) and will be split into showing times and/or categories of films. We hope that this will become an annual event giving local filmmakers an opportunity to show your work on the big screen.
